Grand Teton is one of the most incredible places to join a photography workshop. It offers a little bit of everting. The mountains create a spectacular backdrop for landscape photography and the abundance of animals is sure to make any wildlife photographer giddy.
The first morning of our trip resulted in a moose family crossing the river. What an incredible way to start a workshop! Shortly afterwards we spotted another moose walking through a meadow in the fog. As we continued to explore the park, we found a great foggy landscape scene along the Snake River. The evening shoot produced some nice horse photos and an elk sighting.
The next morning, we captured an iconic landscape scene along the Snake River. We resumed our day with a game drive but it seemed as if most of the animals were taking a nap. That was ok though because the mountains began to reveal themselves. In the evening we headed over to an area where we heard that there might be a bear. As luck would have it, there was a bear and it was grizzly bear! We spent the rest of our time photographing the incredible animal.
The last morning of the workshop we shot a few famous barns in the area. As the sun rose, fog began to fill the valley creating some incredible light. After the barns we headed to another iconic location along the river for some landscape photography with Grand Teton in the background. Since the grizzly sighting was so good, we decided to go back and see if she was still in the area. We were happy to find out that she was still scavenging in the same meadows that we saw her in the day before. We once more spent the rest of the evening photographing her. Once the light grew dark it was time to head back to Jackson Hole and conclude the workshop.
Until next time,
Mike and the rest of the Aperture Academy Team!
